On the nose, it immediately seduces with sweet aromas of canned peaches and grapefruit, enhanced by rich nuances of vanilla and cream, imparting an almost dessert-like quality. A subtle touch of coconut cream adds a tropical feel, gradually evolving into woody notes and a light cinnamon chai latte fragrance. The palate reveals an austere elegance, a honeyed opening mingles with mineral and slightly saline notes. As it evolves, nuances of vanilla cream and cereal malt stand out, accompanied by subtly earthy tones and hints of lactic acid, bringing a unique complexity typical of Chichibu expressions. The spicy finish reveals nuances of anise and pepper, accompanied by sweet lingering notes of honey and vanilla. Gradually, hints of baked apple transform into deeper notes of cocoa and a light umami reminiscent of soy sauce, offering a rich and diverse conclusion.

The distillery Chichibu
Ichiro Akuto, grandson of the founder of the Hanyu distillery, decided in 2007 to build a new whisky distillery in the town of Chichibu, 100 kilometers northwest of Tokyo.
Located near the old Hanyu distillery, the local climate with harsh winters and hot & humid summers, gives a certain maturity to the whiskies produced in Chichibu despite their relative young age (production started in 2008).
A small distillery, Chichibu produces in small quantities, but the remaining stocks of Hanyu, Kawasaki and Karuizawa, now exhausted but having been housed there, have allowed Ichiro Akuto to compose rare and exceptional blends. In 2020, the first of Ichiro Akuto's dreams came true with the first 10 year old single malt distilled, aged and blended in Chichibu and a long history beginning to be written.
